Samsung is recalling 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 cell phones.
A flaw was found in the battery cell that could cause fires, Samsung said Friday. It will replace the phones sent to stores and consumers.
The company has received 35 reports of fires occurring in the Galaxy Note 7s.
Samsung said it expected making replacement phones would take two weeks. For consumers that have already purchased their phones, replacements will be available before the new ones go on sale.
However, Consumer Reports said the Galaxy Note 7 “recall” isn’t official. Samsung hasn’t involved the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which would have made it illegal to sell the phones.
Consumer Reports said it checked multiple retailers Friday and found the phone still being sold at some of them.
